So here she is.  Finally dug it out and about to go into tear down. The last owner was a little sticker crazy 😝 aside form the NY GIants sticker!

The bike is in perfect condition mechanically and ascetically.  No cracks in the plastics etc.  just dirty and sat for quite some tome.  Going to wash her down and take it to pieces, clean it up and fire it up!  More pics to follow.

Thanks @06kfx440  she’s all in tact! Just need to get her fired up.  I thought I would be able to work on it this week but temps are dropping.  Going to leave it be for a few days in my garage and take a few parts off for now. Can’t wash it down just yet.

I paid $300 if I remember correctly. I picked it up back in November.   Put it in a garage I rent a mile away from my house and it sat.   I wanted to wait until it got warmer out. So I picked it up yesterday and brought it to my house and it’s ready to be torn down a bit this week. But it needs a good wash down first.

So here’s some updates. After a few months I finally got around to getting this thing into my garage.  I was in the middle of giving my garage a little makeover and needed some time to make some room, clean up and throw some old shit away. 

The bike is in great shape just super dirty and in need of a what I like to equate it as a colonoscopy! Lol. 

New parts are ordered and on the way. Clutch, chain, plugs, paint and a new bulb for the headlight. 

I found that the carburetor has 100% been opened up and tampered with.  I can’t read the jetting so I’m assuming they are the oem stock jets 🙏🏻   However the air fuel mixture screw was set at 2-3/4 turns out. The specifications call for 1-3/4 so I guess we will have to see after it’s all back together. I’m going to set it at the spec and go from there. 

The machine has an aftermarket exhaust and I think that’s it for upgrades. I’m not opening the head up to see the cams or anything else because it seems to be in time as far as I can see and compression is good with a smooth turnover and the head bolts as well as all other engine bolts and nuts don’t appear to have any wrenching marks on them so I’m guessing it’s all stock. 

More to come soon!

Thanks brother I have the manual already and I think I’m good. It’s going to be a fun bike for my oldest guy he’s 15 to he can play around with it.  He as the 4x4 you obviously know so it’s going to be a bit different to say the least for him. But it’s not hanging around long. I want to sell it after he gets his kicks in.

I pulled a wheelie on one of those once doing about 50.  On a gravel road.  Barefoot and no shirt.

Living in the south has it's perks!

Got the carb broken down and rebuilt. It all seemed in tact and usable.  The jets were a little scared up from what appears to be marks from using the wrong screwdrivers on them.  I filed the scuff marks down and polished as best possible. If there are any performance issues I will swap them out with direct replacements. 

Engine is finally clean and ready to come off of the frame.  I ordered a bunch of parts that are in route.  Oem Kawasaki green paint for the frame and a few other goodies for the engine and sole cosmetic stuff. 

Overall it looks like I will be into this thing for about $700 to $750 bucks If I don’t need anything more, that’s including the quad itself and not my labor of course.

So not bad so far but that’s all speculation for now until this thing fires up and runs. 

But honestly I absolutely love tearing these older machines apart that have been sitting around and bringing them back to life! 

Little by little and more to come stay tuned!

I love bringing them back from the dead too...Just bought a 93 Big Bear that's mostly intact, think it's all there in boxes and parts.  Bought it for nothing so this one should be fun.

That’s great a 93???? Sounds fun post some pics. 

This is one of my more intact machines that I picked up but I will take them either way!

Hate waiting on parts!!!

Ah, reread the ad I bought it from, 1998. 

Carb is missing and it wont shift to neutral/reverse but that's probably not a deal breaker. $200 is cheap enough to put some man hours in.

I like it! Def worth the effort Bc honestly there is a person out there with the same bike that would pay $200 just for the plastics and racks.  So you will get your money back if the engine is beyond repair.

Got the rest of the bike up in the air finally! Everything is unbolted and ready to pull the engine off.  Love this new lift I picked up, gets the bike way up and easy to work on.  

Going to be at a stand still now until the parts and paint come in! 😡

So it’s painted and looks amazing, color was spot on. Parts showed up and I found the oem air box that was missing!! The chain is sick, going to paint a few more things in the next day or so and it’s going to be reassembled this weekend.

I think I should have ordered a new sprocket but it’s too late now. It will be fine i guess. Don’t plan on having this thing around long anyway.

So it’s alive and well. Wrapped up the mechanical end today and she fired right up.  I made a foolish mistake while rebuilding the carb.  After it was running and idling great it would not throttle up! So I broke the carb down one more time thinking the beat up jets could be the problem.   I found that I put the pilot jet in place of the main jet and the main jet in place of the pilot jet! 🤦🏻‍♂️

The thread is the same so it’s easy to make that mistake.  Anyway I swapped it out and it runs like a champ.  Very happy with the sound and condition of this machine.   I know it’s only a 250 but it’s a little beast!!!

Should get the plastics on tomorrow or Monday and see how it runs when it’s on the ground.  

After that maybe let my oldest run with it for a while or post it and move it along to the next owner!

A little update!! Got it all back together for the most part, just waiting on a few more goodies (cosmetic stuff) to show up that were on back order.  They should be here tomorrow afternoon! Going to post up a few more pics after that.  

Took it for a ride and it runs like a champ. It’s fast as heck for a 250.  Very surprised about that and it handles pretty good. Cooling fan kicks in at a perfect 186 degrees and it idles perfect. 

Prob going to let the oldest run with it for a minute and sell it. 

Any guesses on what it’s worth ???

Anywhere between 1k-1500 in central US in not as clean condition as yours. This one is a bit high but its close in value I would think.

      Hello all. I'm a new owner of a like-new 2013 Rancher. I'm hoping to get enough information to keep/maintain my new atv. It's in great condition but I've noticed that it wants to die after running great for a while and I come to a stop. It's like it chokes itself out. Not sure why but it'll start up again but it's in such nice shape I want to make sure I keep it that way. Thanks for any advice and help in advance.

      So i took a road trip today to look at a Suzuki Eiger! 2006 in perfect condition other then the fact it starts for 30 seconds and shuts down.  
      Its been sitting for about a year in a shed. 
      It has a plow and a winch included!!!
      Got it for a really good price and all looks good so far.  
       
      Stay tuned.

      Big thanks to Frank Angerano for all the help he's provided. Plastics were super sun faded and decided to paint them. 
      Upon Frank's recommendations, i used minwax poly to clearcoat after the painting. Turned out good, and is a very close match.

      Hi All,
      Want to show you one automotive show that I filmed in my town called Crazy Race. This was two day race in Qualifications round, Semifinals and Final. In this 4 parts I am showing best moments from all rounds and entertainment of the show.
      Crazy Race Part 2 contains a qualifying round where all riders race against each other, selected by lot and split by two. They are free to drive in any direction and to hit their opponent's car everywhere except at the driver's door. Anyone who intentionally hit the other car in the driver's door is disqualified. Winner of each race continue in the semifinal round. In this part I will present the best moments of the qualifying round! 
       
      Part 3 shows you the best moments from Day 2 - Semifinals and Final. Battles in the semifinals are among the winners of the first day races, but this time they are selected by lot and divided into 4 battles of 4-5 cars each. The rules in each battle are that they only have to drive in one direction and try to neutralize other opponents until there are only two players left. Then the battle between the two last drivers has the rule to drive in any direction until only one who has qualified for the final round is left. Again, anyone who intentionally hit the other car in the driver's door is disqualified.
      For the final round there were only two cars left, because the other two players who got the right to be there had problems with their car and could not participate.
       
      Part 4 containing entertainments between battles and winners rewarding.
      This event will have second round in 05-06 October 2019 and also will be filmed  For this new round I will filmed in many new angels and places. Will prepare a lot more videos and many new entertainments . This 4 videos was my first try so many things to wish for better filming in the future one.
      Hope you will like them and of course feel free to comment and to ask everything. Hope you will Subscribe to my channel and to be first to see my other content and of course new round of Crazy Race! Thanks!
